Welcome to Morganville, Texas.

Just don't stay out after dark.

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school's social scene: somewhere less than zero.

When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life. But they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.

You all know I love vampires, right? And well, Rachel Caine's awesome! So, I've had the first three books in the Morganville Vampires series for a while now. And I really wanted to get stuck into a YA, for a change. It's completely different to what I'm writing at the moment, which I find is (always) essential when I write a first draft. It's that, or not read at all. And well, I wanna read. ;)

Anyway, this book is awesome. I love Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael. What a nice bunch of kids. Okay, so they're a little quirky and live in a town run by vampires, but these four are so cool. They're really not afraid of anyone, or anything. Sure, they get scared but never back down. Love it! And the bitch in this book, Monica... man, you just wanna scratch her eyes out. I loved the plot. Lotsa twists and turns. And you know, when I got to the end, I just had to start the next one right away. The end was a little bit of a cliffhanger.

Still, awesome book! Can't wait to find out more about this strange place...
